Full time permanent position


MoveGB are on a mission to be the largest active community in the world. Think of what Netflix has done to the movie industry – we are seeing the same seismic shift in the active leisure sector, with consumers "subscribing to fitness" rather than choosing a single activity provider.

Our marketplace includes thousands of gyms, studios and leisure centres, with instructors live-streaming their classes through the platform, producing instructional videos or teaching in-person. The variety of activities and convenience of having them in one platform keeps out customers active, healthy, and most importantly happy!

We're looking for high calibre engineers who can get inside the minds of our users, conceiving and building slick product experiences that keep users engaged. You'll need the drive to deliver results independently and remotely, and we'll support you with quality peer review of code and mentoring sessions with passionate colleagues to help you learn and develop. You'll have the freedom to work across the full codebase using typescript, react, node and related technologies.

If you think you're well aligned with our company mission and tech stack, drop us a message describing what you like working on, what you can bring to Move, and we'll take it from there. If you have a contact at Move please get in touch through them, referrals are always good and might be rewarded :-)

Stack outlook:

  • Frontend apps: React, TypeScript, styled-components, Koa
  • Backend services: NodeJS, TypeScript, MySQL, Redis, ElasticSearch
  • API: GraphQL
  • Mobile: PWA, TWA (Android), React-Native (iOS)
  • Infrastructure: AWS, Terraform, Docker, Fargate
  • Tooling: git, Jenkins, CodeDeploy, Slack, Bugsnag, Graylog, Grafana,, Amplitude

We're a small team working with a growth mindset, and you'll have the chance to deliver value for customers very quickly. You might be a good fit if you tick some of the following:

  • Driven software engineer with a solid understanding JavaScript
  • User-focused and care a lot about building a great product
  • Lead, shape and build data-driven features, such as timely and relevant recommendations or alerts
  • Focus on performance, scalability, code structure and attention to detail nag at you until they are sorted
  • You are (or can see yourself as) a MoveGB member or partner, and want to influence our product features and roadmap

Our product/engineering team currently includes six engineers, a product designer and a product manager. You'll help tens of thousands of people get active each month, and thousands of fitness instructors find a market for their talent.

We endeavour to hire a diverse and varied team from all walks of life and have made a commitment to hire, develop, pay and treat all employees fairly so if there's anything about our process where you think we could improve please email us on and we'll be keen to hear your thoughts so that we might improve in the future.
